Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Startup advice please

Hello Dear UE4 Users,

I am totally new guy here. I am developer over 10 years (I start from board games long time ago) I am 33 years old. I was used "stencyl game engine" which is cool for 2D games but is very limited.

Now I am on crossroad between Unreal and other game engines.. My problem is kwnoledge of real programming langues..Actually - I don`t like it at all! I like visual programming. So now Blueprint seems like very powerfull Visual scripting system, the only problem is poor documentation and video tutorials. anyway my question is simple:

I am vey tired from freelancer jobs,I am looking for full-time. Is it possible for me to find full-time job in other country like blueprint programmer?

Any advice will be very helpful for me ..Thanks in advance and regards to all

Product Version: UE 4.12

I agree your replay,thanks for it ;) but lets be honest about Game Industry overall. I am on crossroad between Unity and Unreal, even I start learning Unreal still I am thinking (am I on right way?) .. Unity is much more popular against Unreal but when you Say UNREAL ENGINE - they all say wow..amazing,wonderfull etc.. but there not so much opened job positions for Unreal,I mean there are but you have more then double for Unity.

Personally I like to play every game made in UE, and every game made by unity is mostly garbage. if you take a look over the internet there are million ppls who have same dilemma as me .. "unity vs unreal" is real war out there.. but I don`t know any person who work with UE ? :( where is community? why forum doesn't work ? :( (

can't agree with you more :) i started unity in february. but for the things i ve seen, most of games are for mobile, and are just simple remakes of famous games, with enforced add placement for money :) (not too far from reality here :) of course there are good project on unity too just kidding :)) but for now the forum are under maintenance, they will come back soon i think. what i instantly liked on ue4 community is the creativity, once the forum is back, try to take a look at the "Game Jams" threads, you ll see very fun stuffs there :) and if you can't find solutions to your problems during dev, you have the answer hub that is pretty efficient (at my thought)

That`s the point,I am making mobile games :) but yes there are lot of remakes. If you are old freelancer you will know and why: India,pakistan,China etc.. copy/paste masters they make noise at traffic. I HATE remakes,such I am creative person full of my own idea. I am from Serbia so you don't need to suspect at my character such we get more then half medals in Rio this year :D ( just kidding :D ) Regards to you :) p.s. How can I send you pm?

i'am in about the same situation as you are (except i was nt programmer, but tired of being a freelancer too :) ) what i can say is that the blueprint system is very powerfull (but be careful to stay tidy for optimisation...) and i m learning the engine since april (i have a few basis in C and Java that helps a bit ) and i found lots of documentation and tutorials (on the forums, youtube, and personnal blogs from devs). and in a few mounth, with all that, i achieved to create a full working MP game. so i think you re a bit wrong when you re saying that there no much documentation, just hit the forums and you ll find lots of stuffs. for finding i can t say, cause i don t really know the market, but it seems that lots of indie are starting to use BP to prototype their game.
